02.02.2016 - RBA has left interest rates at 2.0%
Currency trading and the euro. The price of euro shows growth against the US dollar amid weak statistics from America. Thus, the manufacturing PMI in January was 48.2, which is 0.4 below analysts' forecasts. Personal consumer spending did not grow on a background of warm weather, which reduced the cost of utilities and a reduction in car sales. It should be noted that a representative of the ECB Benoit Kere said about the probable revision of the parameters of ECB on monetary policy meeting in March, which will have a strong negative impact on the euro. Today will be published important statistics on unemployment in the Eurozone (10:00 GMT). The main event of this week will be publication of a report on the US labor market on Friday. We expect a soon resumption of the negative dynamics of the euro, but the current growth can continue in the near future.
02.02.2016 - Quotes of oil according to our forecasts will update the lows in the near future
The price of futures for Light Sweet crude oil continues to show a negative trend after last week showed growth against the backdrop of speculation about a possible consensus among OPEC and Russia on reducing the volume of oil production to stabilize oil prices. These statements have not been confirmed in OPEC, which, together with the deterioration of macroeconomic indicators in the US and China, led to a decrease in oil quotations. We maintain a medium-term negative outlook on oil targets for 28.00 and 25.00 and recommend holding short positions with a stop above 35.00.
